My Dell Inspiron 6400 (Windows XP Home) won't reboot. It's giving me a "Loading PBR for descriptor 1 ... done" line on a black screen. What can I do to fix it. Can I salvage my content / files


Before you use the Recovery CD you need to backup your data because to restoring your laptop will wipe your data off the hard disk.
To backup your data when you cannot boot up your laptop, remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter. Connect this hard drive/USB adapter into the USB port of a working computer. The computer will see it as an external storage device, you can then open the folders and backup your data.
You can then fit the hard drive back into the Dell laptop and boot up with the Dell recovery CD to reinstall Windows etc.

Down laod xp recovery disk


If you're running Windows XP and Windows crashes or becomes unusable, you may have to run a Windows XP recovery setup disk to make your computer usable again. When purchased, many computers don't come with a Windows XP recovery setup disk, but you can download one for free from Microsoft. The Windows XP recovery setup disk holds the computer software and files that you need to assist you in rebuilding your operating system.

Place a formatted floppy disk in your floppy disk drive. You will need six formatted floppy disks. Visit Microsoft's Download Center and download the version of the setup disk for your version of Windows (see links in Resources). http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?displaylang=en&FamilyID=E8FE6868-6E4F-471C-B455-BD5AFEE126D8 Home Edition http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=8030 Professional Edition set up disks for floppy http://www.download3000.com/download_17676.html XP Recovery CD Maker Windows XP Home Edition and Windows XP Professional Edition have their own recovery setup disks and you must use the correct disk for your version of Windows. Click "Download" and then "Save." Find your floppy drive or optical media drive on the menu and click "OK." If Windows isn't functioning at all, you will have to perform these actions from a working PC. Remove the last floppy disk when the Windows XP recovery disk download is complete and place it in the computer on which you need to use it. Shut down your computer and then turn it back on. If your computer prompts you to boot from the disk, press Enter. If it doesn't, you'll have to go into your BIOS to set the computer to boot first from your disk drive. When your computer boots from disk it will automatically start running the Windows XP recovery setup disk from which you can then set up Windows XP. Hope this helps.

I have bought a BTC extrenal disk drive USB 2.0 CD-RW 52x24x52x. My computer is regestering that it is in the usb port but it will not read any disks. I have an Acer travel mate 2300 laptop


A BTC CD-RW drive is compatible with Windows 95/98/NT/ME/2000/XP and it can read and write under Windows 95/98/NT/ME/2000/XP.
Under DOS, the drive can read CDs only.

The quality of CD-R/RW media varies from different brands. A CD-R/RW media with bad quality causes writing error and makes a CD-ROM drive difficult to read.

Please check if the disc has deep scratches, fingerprints, or other contaminants on the discs surface. Clean the disc if it is necessary.


1. Use the burning software which is provided by original supplier and bundled with this CD-RW drive or download the update file from internet. 2. More capacity of hard disk is needed if using hard disk as temporary buffer. 3. Place the disc correctly. 4. The blank disc needs full format first if using Packing Writing software.
Software such as; EasyCD Creator, Nero-Burning ROM, NTI CDMaker are the only supported.

Flash firmware for Windows mode: 1. Please download the appropriate driver file you need from this page. 2. Run the flash program under Windows. 3. Click on the ¡uUpgrade¡vbutton under the flash program 4. ¡uStatus Upgrading¡vis starting to flash the F/W 5. After flashing, the system will appear ¡uComplete¡IPlease restart your computer¡v, then, restart your computer to finish the flash procedure. Note: 1. BTC do not recommend you to upgrade your F/W, if the drive is working properly and does not encounter any irreclaimable problem issues. 2. BTC is not responsible for any defective reasons if the upgrading process caused the issue. Firmware for windows:V000F.exe

I am unable to format a DVD-RW disc on my Windows XP computer


Typically, you use DVD/CD writing software to write files to the disc.
There is no 'formatting' involved.
If, however, you want to use a DVD/RW disc as a "big floppy" then you need special software for that. What software came with your DVD writer? or You can use free "Nero InCD", -> Download

Hope it helps.

Note**
For OS XP, you must have at least, WinXP Service Pack 2 installed.

How do i format a Cd on windows xp


1 Open your disk drive2_bing.gif. Ensure that your disk drive is empty before proceeding, some CDs, especially CD-RWs, will be erased if you skip this step.
  • Step 2 Place CD-RW into CR-R drive. The disk drive may automatically detect this is an empty or "clean" disk. If so, skip to step 4.
  • Step 3 Find the disk. Click on "Start," then "My Computer," then on "Devices with Removable Storage," and then right-click on the CD-RW icon.
  • Step 4 Format the disk. Select "Format Disk" from either the drop down menu on Step 3 or from the Dialog Box in Step 2. This process should take only a few minutes to complete. If your CD-RW has information on it already, you may select "Erase CD-RW" instead of "Format Disk."

    How do I format a disc (DVD or CD) on Windows XP?


    You only format a CD/RW or a DVD/RW, which are re-writeable.

    Regular discs do not need to be formatted (CD-R or DVD+R, DVD-R, DVD+R DL, etc.).

    To format the DVD/RW idisc, use the "burner" software ( Sonic?, Nero?) and choose [Tools] [Erase Disc] (erase is the same as format)
